Michael Szell on modelling urban bicycle pathways

In the seventh-episode, Associate Professor Michael Szell talks about his research on modelling sustainable urban bicycle networks. Here Michael explains how he, and his team, are using large data sets such as OpenStreetMap to computationally model more effective routes for urban areas. The hope, says Michael, is to develop models for planning
bicycle infrastructures that will lead to future cities that more concretely support different
modes of transit.
